“Happy birthday Steve Jobs,” read a post from Apple-centric blog Cult of the Mac. “The whole world misses you.”
Jobs’ birthday was among the top five trends at Twitter.
Those feeding the torrent of messages tweeted through the day ranged from young folks who cherished their iPods to major corporations or publications paying tribute to how Jobs changed lives around the globe.

Someone using the name of the Darth Vader character from “Star Wars” jokingly tweeted about trying to convince film-maker George Lucas to add Jobs’ ghost to those in the closing scene of the final film in the blockbuster series.
Popular tweets included famous Jobs’ quotes including “The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”
Jean-Luc Palumbo tweeted that he hoped Jobs was enjoying “iHeaven.”
